ABSTRACT: Schools are capable of taking important roles in preventing and combating maltreatment occurring in the home and community. This article describes these roles and their implications for five categories of psychological maltreatment (terrorizing,rejecting, isolating, ignoring and corrupting) in terms of their impact on school-aged children developing intellectual, social and emotional competencies. School based programming for prevention and intervention is described, and its potential use illustrated with case studies.
